Addiction of the Week: Substance Belly Jelly

Filed under: Just For Moms, Your Pregnancy

One of the biggest nuisances of pregnancy? Over-stretched, paper-thin skin. If you didn't already know, and I kinda hate to be the one to break it to you, there's no way to avoid stretch marks. It's genetic.

I'll give you a second to get over that news.

Now, that being said, I can't make any crazy claims about the product I'm about to tell you about, but I will tell you how it's been working for me. It could be that my first pregnancy already stretched me out more than your big-footed best friend did your favourite pumps in 12th grade. But my husband commented the other day that I have fewer stretch marks this time around. My secret? I am obsessed with an amazing, all-natural moisturizing balm for mommies-to-be.

Substance Belly Jelly
has ingredients you can pronounce, (meaning you're not polluting the earth or your skin by buying it,) a good consistency that makes your skin feel luxurious, and a subtle scent that makes me happy every time I open the tin. Created by two Toronto herbalists who have a passion and a commitment to making gentle products for moms and babies, this is the ultimate gift (or treat for yourself) for anyone who, like me, feels like they are bordering on water buffalo status.

I am so infatuated with this stuff that the other day in my prenatal yoga class, I spotted the tin from across the room. After I did much gushing, the instructor mentioned that she'd be massaging our necks with it at the end of class. Well you never saw me move so quickly through poses. Seriously, it's that good.

It's only available in stores across Canada at the moment, but owner Denise Williams will happily ship to you anywhere in North America. Click here for details.
